Fiance and I decided that we were not going to have a bridal party. Just my daughter was going to be a Junior bride, she will be seven at the time. My sister and his twin brother were going to be our witnesses. (For Jamaican weddings the witnesses have to sign the documents at the ceremony. That was going to be it. One of my BFF's has been constantly nagging me about how she wants to be in the wedding. Mind you she was in my first wedding. I just dont want the bridal party drama. So, I came up with the title of honorary attendants. Whereas the three girls can pick any dress they want in my color scheme and wear a corsage and sit in the first row. Has anyone ever heard of this title before? They are definitely my girls and I want them with me but I dont want a bridal party so I just came up with that title. LOL!
Need you guys opinions on Honorary Attendants!

It's an interesting way of showing that they are important to you! I like it! Will they still be helping out?

This sounds like a great idea! This way no one feels "left out" and you do not have to deal with the bridal party drama that can only add more stress to the planning process.
I am considering doing the same thing myself. Three out of the four bridesmaids I had in my first wedding are still my close friends and I too wondered about how to include them without having a bridal party.
I'm sure you already know this, but it's your wedding and you go ahead and do whatever will work for you and your fiance!
Good luck planning...

I think all rules can go out the window with a DW (if you want to of course!) so I think it's a lovely idea.

hmm this sounds like a great idea.. I have too many sisters and freinds that would be hurt if they weren't picked, but making them all bridesmaids would be silly. IT would be half our guest list! lol
